Lot 063: Audi Quattro Coupe

Classic Vintage Cars & Motorcycles, Brightwells Auctioneers and Valuers (27 November 2013)

Launched in 1987, the Audi Quattro Coupe was a two-door version of the Audi 90, itself an upmarket version of the highly rated Audi 80, and featured Audi's pioneering Quattro four-wheel drive system which gave it immense traction in all road conditions. Beautifully built with a fully zinc-coated body that carried a 12-year corrosion warranty, it was powered by Audi's unique 2.2-litre inline five-cylinder engine that was also used in the immortal (and visually similar) Audi Quattro Turbo. In non-turbo form, as here, it still developed a useful 132bhp and 137lb/ft of torque and was every well-heeled Yuppie's dream car in the 'Vorsprung durch Technik' Eighties. First registered in February 1987, this particular Coupe was previously owned by an Audi fanatic and has reputedly won several awards at shows. Indeed, at the time of cataloguing, it was actually on display in an Audi dealer's showroom to promote the launch of a much newer Audi model. Finished in blue with a grey cloth interior, it has covered some 103,000 miles to date and comes with a large history file to show regular careful maintenance. Said to be in excellent condition inside and out, it is also said to be in superb mechanical order and to drive beautifully. Taxed until the end of November and MOTd until October 2014, it is ready to go and show.
